Rejoice: Assuredly "farewell" does not deserve a place in the margin here. Indeed the Americans should have objected to it in the margin of 3:1. Here it is monstrous: for what is the meaning of "Farewell in the Lord alway?" and why not, if it be so, say in 1 Thess. 5:16, Farewell "alway"? There indeed they omit their marginal note properly; but they should not have given it here. (Bible Treasury 14:380) [See note to Phil. 3:1]
